this is reported i thought was redundant, like saying president obama's speech in n newtown was a call to scripture and prayer. it wasn't what he was talking about but he referenced scripture and prayer. the first words out of his mouth, the lord is already near, come, let us adore him. it was a spiritual message. in the middle of the message he reflected on the traditional family which we know the church supports and has long supported. and defended. and he made glancing reference to our personal selfishness and said that's a threat to the family. people not wanting to make commitments. and therefore give of their time and their energy to have families in the first place. and then he made reference to this manipulation of nature. but he never mentioned gay marriage. he never mentioned gay people in there. so i think, you know, it is it was certainly one can interpret that was the focus of what he was talking about in that particular paragraph. but i think to characterize the whole message that way is reductive. he was calling all of us to task for various failings, in our personal lives, and i thi

's working very well, at least today for the stock. thank you, nicole. well, president obama has always promised not to raise taxes on the middle class, but if he can't reach a deal with republicans in the next seven days, that's exactly what will happen and adam shapiro, i've got to tell you, looking at the numbers, if the president gets every penny from the so-called rich that he wants to get, that would still only be 1/8 of the money that he needs to balance the budget. >> in very simple terms, it's roughly 70 billion dollars is what it would raise, in a budget-- >> if the rates go up and another 20 billion, if you get rid of deductions, but he's increased spending 800 billion dollars a year. >> and to say that 70 to 80 billion in a budget that's 900 billion to a tral over budget. so doesn't add up. where does the other 930, 920 billion where is it going to come from? >> which is why, shibani, a lot of people say, maybe he wants to go over the fiscal cliff because he cares about maintaining that level of spending. he doesn't want to decrease spending, he wants to keep it where it is

. moments after president obama was declared the victor, the money struggle in washington stole the spotlight as lawmakers debated over how to avert the fiscal cliff. mother nature took a toll on several parts of the country this year. superstorm sandy ripped through the northeast in late october, leaving a trail of damage along the way. the storm racked up damage of around $60 billion, making it the second most expensive storm ever for the u.s., following hurricane katrina. the storm destroyed houses and businesses on the east coast, leaving millions without power. just months earlier, crop prices shot up following a massive drought that hit the midwest and some northern states. weeks without rain sent corn and soybean prices sky-high. it was estimated that the drought was the worst in nearly a quarter of a century. 2012 was not without its controvesies. trading scandals rocked the news, highlighted by jpmorgan chase. the big bank lost more than $2 billion in what was called "a trading debacle." ceo jamie dimon took a trip to capitol hill for a testimony where he told senators
